Walleye are being caught on the Black River. Hopefully with some nicer weather coming the end of this week will spark the Crappie to bite. Those wishing to spear Sturgeon on Lake Winnebago must apply by Oct. 31.
Trapping began Oct. 17 for coyote, fox (Red or Gray), bobcat (if you have a permit for period 1), fisher, raccoon (resident only). Mink and muskrat opens Oct. 24. Beaver and otter start Nov 7 (permit required).
The bucks are starting to move. Scrapes and rubs are plentiful. The best deer hunting is right around the corner. Shooting hours in Clark and Taylor County are 30 minutes before sunrise to 20 minutes after sunset (if you can see!). Complete times are listed in the Fall 2020-Spring 2021 Wisconsin Hunting Regulations available at O-W Sports, Owen.
